Drainage or Runoff

The fire hydrant on Jordan, between the Delta Gamma house and the parking garage has been open, pouring water into the street all weekend and is still doing so. This is a gross waste of the city's clean water.

Drainage or Runoff

704 E Winslow Farm DR

Case Date:
4/25/2015

Note location should be Winslow Farm Community Association storm water retention pond (DO NOT contact this home address). Note: I live at 414 E Wylie Farm road. My question is should soil erosion in Winslow forest be abated since we have a lot of soil in our storm water detention pond that seems to highly likely have come from Winslow woods (accumulated since WFCA pond was constructed in 1995).

Drainage or Runoff

Case Date:
10/15/2015

I CAN'T GET THE LOCATION DESIGNATION TO INDICATE MY POSITION.. However I am on the corner of East Maxwell Lane and South Highland Avenue. My address is 1300 E. Maxwell Lane. A couple of days ago I noticed a hole about 8 or 10 inches across had opened up in what appears to be the easement in front of my house. It is about 8 inches deep and in the middle of the hole is the end of a metal pipe. You can just see the top portion of the pipe. It looks as though this pipe is in line with an open underground intersection of piping at Maxwell and Highland which which collects rainwater and runs south on Highland. . I don't know whether with rainfall there is water coming out of the pipe but there does seem to be erosion around the end of the pipe which I think must account for the hole forming. If someone could come look at it and determine what's going on I would be most appreciative.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

Case Date:
11/13/2015

I hope I am reporting this to the same place that I did earlier (see below) The City of Bloomington website is a bit Byzantine in nature I live at 1300 East Maxwell Lane on the SE corner of E. Maxwell Lane and Highland Avenue. Several weeks ago I contacted you about a hole in the pavement that runs in front of out house. It is situated in an offset parking area that looks to be on the easement along the front of our house. The hole is about 8 inches across and several inches deep. Below the surface of the pavement you can see the top of a pipe which extends north towards an open drainage area at the intersection of East Maxwell Lane and Highland. It would seem to continue to the south down Highland. You can see the edge of the pipe, which is open, where the hole in the pavement has formed and it looks as though water must have been draining out at this point causing the surrounding material around it to erode which allowed the pavement above it to collapse. Several days after I contacted you someone from the city did come out and look at it but said that he was not sure as to whether it was the city’s responsibility to correct the problem or ours as the homeowners. He said he would need to research the situation to see exactly what might be involved in the problem and who should take care of the repair. However we have not heard anything from the city concerning this and we would like to have it corrected before winter sets in with more rain and snow runoff creating more of a problem, which I feel sure will ultimately affect not only our lot but also the street adjacent to it. A few days after that person was here I did see a city car pulled up alongside Maxwell Lane for a few minutes but no one got out or came to the door to inquire but it could have been someone else from the city coming to assess the situation. They may have been thinking that the problem was on that side of the house since we do have a Maxwell Lane address but the house faces Highland and the problem is on that side. I don’t know, this is just a guess. Could someone there please check to see what is happening with this problem?

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

1000 S High ST

Case Date:
4/1/2016

I have traveled High Street between Arden Rd. and 3rd Street twice a day for the last ten years. Every time there is a heavy rain, water accumulates and flows down High Street between E. Mores Pike and 2nd St. forcing me to move to the other lane to avoid going through large amounts of water creating a very unsafe situation. I was delighted to see this section of High Street repaved last summer and noticed the sewers also being worked on. I assumed, incorrectly, that the runoff problem would be corrected during this maintenance project. Since the paving the runoff has actually gotten worse. Are there plans to fix this unsafe situation so cars can travel safely on High Street without endangering drivers and pedestrians? I regularly see in the Herald Times where is city is allocating and spending money on hiking and biking trails, sidewalks and various pedestrian conveniences. Why don’t we spend some of that money on making our streets safe and passable? Looking forward to your reply, Franklin Lograsso Bloomington cc: David Rollo

Drainage or Runoff

2201 E Autumn DR

Case Date:
4/28/2016

I submitted an erosion/drainage issue behind my house (2201 E. Autumn Dr. Bloomington IN 47401). Someone from City called and left a message for me saying that it is on private property therefore City will not take care of it. I showed it to several other folks and in their opinion, it is City's responsibility since the rainwater pipe is the one causing the damage. I am not sure if your site visitors went to the location to verify this. The rain water from the entire neighborhood comes through this pipe and ends in the creek. I am attaching a picture with this form so that you can take a look at it.If the site visitor wants to visit again, this is happening in between (the back of ) houses 2201 and 2200.
